Iran - the first domino?

Many opponents of the Iraq war were skeptical of the neo-con updated domino theory - that regime chance in Iraq would lead to democratisation throughout the Middle East.

Juan Cole on Iran:

"I think that if Iraq is able to hold and sustain regular parliamentary elections, with the Shiite clerics mainly concerning themselves with social and moral issues from outside the government, as Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani envisages, it could help undermine Khomeinism in Iran."
